Major Colin Burgess served as equerry to the Queen Mother between 1994 and 1996, a sort of modern-day knight position that involved scheduling for, serving as a companion to, and generally "looking after" that most senior member of the royal family. Instantly charmed by the nonagenarian's wit, grace, and no-nonsense attitude, he remained friends with her until her death in 2002. In this revealing, funny, and respectful memoir, Burgess offers the reader an insider's glimpse into Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon's incredible life, along with fascinating insight into royal protocols and daily life with the royal family. Royal-watchers and Anglophiles will fly through this delightful and affectionate tribute to the Queen Mum. (AG)
